How to Cook Wild Ahi Saku Blocks

  • Wild Ahi Saku Blocks
  • Avocado oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Seasoning / sauce / garnish of choice
Prep time
4 minutes
Cook time
2 minutes

Instructions

  1. To Thaw: Place your frozen Wild Ahi Saku blocks in the refrigerator the night before you plan to cook them. This will allow plenty of time to unthaw.
  2. If you are short on time and need to thaw your Ahi Saku Blocks in a hurry, place your frozen fish still in the sealed packaging into a bowl. Fill the bowl with water that is slightly colder than room temperature - you don’t want water that is too cold, this will slow the thawing process, but you don’t want hot water, as that will degrade the fish texture. After filling the bowl with water, make sure the fish is submerged, if the blocks float, place a smaller bowl or plate on them to keep the blocks submerged. Add new water every 20 to 30 minutes until your fish is fully thawed.
  3. To start, heat grill or cast iron skillet to medium-high heat, add avocado oil to coat the pan and allow to heat up.
  4. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste over your Ahi Saku Blocks.
  5. Sear the Ahi Saku blocks for 45 seconds to 1 minute to maintain the best texture for your fish.
  6. Add flavor with any seasoning, sauce or garnish of your choice and serve!
  7. Extra Step: If you intend to thinly slice the blocks into strips, make sure a sharp knife is used and slice the blocks with care.
